Lanky shoulders gave a shy shrug, eyes cast down at the roll that he now had pressed against mouth as he breathed in the sweet smell. It was fortune that this round of pick-pocketing yielded plenty without any trouble. He even had enough to pay for a small blue and purple flower from a cart. Part of him said to save it, but…
He quickly pushed down the feeling of guilt and selfishness by scarfing down have the roll in a few bites and flashing puffy cheek smile her way.
jesse and cesar were amazing characters who worked to influence overarching themes and others’ character development AND they are a canon queer couple who DID NOT DIE and thats AMAZING.
i found myself a lil bit disappointed (at first) about their physicality, or rather the lack thereof. they never rly SHOWED any indication of their relationship that was undeniably romantic other than words, and i was worried that the writers were doing that thing where theyre like ‘ok this bro is gay but we dont want him to LOOK gay or BE gay with ANOTHER gay well just SAY he is and be on our way and not have to put any thought into this representation or risk making homophobes uncomfortable.’
thats what i thought AT FIRST.
then I looked at what kind of physicality they DID show:
shoulder touches. brief, comforting, lil squeeze for love. look familiar?
well if jesse and cesar are an example of how they characterize romantic male/male relationships then sign me the fuck up
